Public Education –why you should care?

Whether you’re a Billionaire or a Boilermaker, you should care about public education. It doesn’t matter if your kids attend an independent or Catholic school or even if you don’t have children. Every single person in Western Australia will reap the benefits or suffer the failures of the public education system.

The Fremantle community is so disillusioned with the Education system they have started their own group and website to address the problem.

Amazingly patient the matter dates back to 1989, however, they have now commenced a program to get the government to take notice of the issue.

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
